The lace floral collection is a balanced mix of light, summery outfits which are basic enough for work as well as pretty chic for an evening dinner. I love clothes that can be practical and are adaptable to several occasions. My Marie Kondo vibes kick in so I feel like I have done justice to my clothing-investment while it simultaneously gives me immense joy.

The collection consists of a palette of light yet deliciously fresh pastels like lavender, sky blue, peach and more. The texture is a mix of embroideries and screen prints while the material is cotton. The cuts are structured, loose-fit and suitable for all body types. What I really like about the clothes is that even though they are quite lux in appearance they are very affordable and extremely comfortable. Another plus point is that Ramazan is around the corner and this collection is ideal for the kind of clothes we require for Iftar meet-ups so better grab them while they are available. Price starts from PKR. 2850

Here is a glimpse of the pretty outfits from the Lace Floral SS20 Collection by Ideas Pret:

Sweet Thai Chili Chicken Salad Recipe

12:00 PM 0
I am practicing clean eating which can be hard if you love spicy ramen like me and crave it everyday, sigh. However, I love cooking, salads and experimenting with food so I did not give up easily. I wanted to do something different than the typical grilled chicken salad so tried a sweet thai chili version and it worked well. It is a super simple recipe, packed with flavor as well as texture and less than 500 healthy calories.

Sweet Thai Chili Chicken Salad Recipe, salad recipes, healthy food, asian food, clean eating, fitness, top pakistani Blog, top food blog, top pakistani food blog, pakistani blogger, lifestyle blog of pakistan




















INGREDIENTS:

1 Chicken fillet (chopped into chunks)
1/2 a head of broccoli (or less, I like more cause I LOVE broccoli and it fills me up!
1/2 of yellow or orange or red bell pepper chopped in strips (you can use green capsicum too if you want)
A handful of chopped iceberg lettuce
A few cloves of garlic
Soya Sauce
Curry Paste
Sweet Thai Chili Sauce
Sesame Seeds
Light mayonnaise
Sea Salt or Pink Himalayan Salt to taste
Olive Pomace oil

DIRECTIONS:

Marinate chicken overnight with some soya sauce. I used 1 tbsp.

In a non stick wok (a non stick pot will do too) drizzle a little bit of Olive pomace oil. On medium heat add the garlic cloves and saute till very light brown and then add chicken chunks and cook for 5 minutes.

In a small bowl mix 1 tsp curry paste, 2 table spoon sweet Thai chili sauce and 1 tbsp soya sauce. Add to the chicken and mix. Add salt if you need too, I didnt because soya sauce already contains sodium.

Cook the chicken till it's tender on low to medium heat and then add chopped broccoli and bell peppers. Stir properly, add a splash of some more soya sauce if needed and after cooking for 5 minutes cover the top and reduce heat to low. Cook for 5 to ten minutes till broccoli and peppers semi cooked yet still sustain their crunch and you are done with the cooking bit.

In a bowl place the the chopped ice berg lettuce and top with sweet Thai chili chicken and veggies. Don't throw away the remaining liquid in the wok, it can be used as additional salad dressing if needed. Drizzle some light Mayo on top and sprinkle with sesame seeds, enjoy!

Hope you like this recipe, do give me feedback in the comments below and let me know what else you would like me to share with you!

SALT Winter Collection 2019 - Ideas Pret

7:33 PM 0
Is it just me or do I feel winter is creeping up on us. The evenings and early mornings in Karachi have gotten chilly and I just visited Lahore which is definitely welcoming autumn as I write. Winter is definitely around the corner so I need to kick my lazy bum to take out winter clothes. Other than the old stuff I have been eyeing some new collections as well. Have you seen the new Winter Collection of Salt by Ideas Pret? The sweaters and scarves are a treat!

There is a variety of option and colors that you can pick and choose from. From shawl collars to button down cardigans, from jacquard to chain yarn cardigans, different textures, colors, patterns and styles. The pricing is also extremely affordable and definitely a good investment. The sweaters are in the range of 3k to 5k (pkr) and guess what, they have a discount so you can get them for much less.

The sweaters and cardigans look comfy yet trendy. What I really like is that the style is timeless which means that if you buy a pair, or two (or more!) you can use it again in the future, the style wont get out dated. Another "cool" factor are the muted tones which allows styling or pairing them with outfits more flexible, therefore, you will be able to wear them more often than expected, great use of a good buy.





















Can we not forget the scarves? Sometimes you don't want anything too heavy yet need some subtle warmth, or, sometimes you need some extra tlc. Here comes the wraps and scarves. Checkered, abstract, and many other pattern along with a few solids. Knot them up, wrap them around or turn them into a diy poncho. Get warm while setting a trend with these comfy pieces starting from 2k and above.









Gotta love this collection and you don't want to have FOMO so go get a few pieces before they sell out and you are left with despair. Visit their WEBSITE and also keep checking their FACEBOOK for updates. Go get warm!
